OutRun is a racing game that allows the player to race across varied terrain in a readily available Ferrari, complete with a female passenger, over a series of short tracks.
Gameplay is viewed from just above and behind the car. The roads are full of sharp bends and hazards, contact with which can cause the car to roll and lose the player's time. On each section of track there is a fork in the road, allowing the player to choose which direction he or she wishes to go in. The player has to to complete five track sections in total, out of the fifteen in the game.

I'm even a bit tentative on the things I think I've figured out. I think shifting gears speeds up the game play (but I'm not sure). Maybe I just haven't gotten far enough through the course to discover the need yet, but I don't know what the two "service" options are for.
My personal project is to work through the internet arcades games, writing about them as I go. I plan to spend a week playing this one. It might even be fun enough to put in my permanent retro game rotation to play periodically.

Either I just am terrible now, or the keyboard controls make it harder. I don't remember whether the original game had actual analog steering or gas pedal, or just "left-right" steering and "on-off" gas.
left and right arrows to steer
control is gas pedal
either return or space to shift gears.
brakes, who needs them?
The sound is a bit off - i think it's getting clipped somehow.
